Teamsters Local 31 Will Not Set Up Picket Lines around Rocky Mountaineer Station at Art For Life on November 26th
The Teamsters Local 31 are engaged in a labour dispute with Rocky Mountaineer. We have been in contact with the Teamsters Executive, and they have agreed not to place picket lines around our event on November 26th. On November 26 you are welcome to participate in the event and you will NOT be asked to cross a picket line. The Union will have some of its members in attendance handing out pamphlets and we encourage to visit http://www.teamsters31.ca/ so that you can learn more about this labour dispute.
Thank you to Teamsters Local 31 for their gracious support for this year's Art For Life event, and for recognizing the vital importance this particular function plays in our ongoing efforts to provide health services to our members living with serious illnesses.
